Tel: 323 373 0700's insider take:

Don Dae Gam, a brand-new offshoot of L.A.'s esteemed beef-centered Park's Barbeque, is a restaurant that takes the original's reputation for grilled prime-meat selections and focuses that same level of attention on the pig. Located in a Koreatown strip mall and patterned after the pork-and-soju joints that are the latest rage in Seoul, Don Dae Gam is all about lean pork neck meat, marinated deboned pork ribs, ribbons of pork belly, and pork intestine (spiced just seconds before hitting the grill, it's so delicious it should be given a different name so as not to be passed over by the innards-phobic). You cook your meats on gas-powered charcoal braziers set into the small, round tables that somehow give the place an air of late-night cafe cheeriness. (Long tables for larger parties dot a separate room.) A Combo #1—three types of pork for grilling, a nightly selection of banchan (customary little side dishes), kimchi jigae (a bubbling, bright red stew), and a choice of soju or beer—costs $39.99 and can feed two to three people. "There are so many all-you-can-eat places in Koreatown right now, but they don't serve high quality," says owner Jenny Kim. "That's who I'm targeting."—Margy Rochlin, first published on
